ENDINGS AND BEGINNINGS

Life Is full of entrances and exits – we come and go; we arrive and depart; we are born and we die.

In today’s Readings we have two stories of Jesus’ final departure – Luke ends his Gospel with the Ascension and opens the Acts also with the Ascension.  Jesus’ return to the Father is the completion of His mission and also marks the start of a new age.  The Ascension is an ending and a beginning.

Jesus had to go before the Holy Spirit comes – His going means the coming of the Spirit.  The disciples must “be clothed with power from on high” and before that can happen, Jesus must go.  The Ascension marks the end of Jesus’ appearances and the completion of His mission.  Now is the time of the Spirit.

That same Spirit empowers us today.  We cannot minister to each other in Jesus’ name except in the Spirit.  With the Spirit we will have life – we will “be clothed with power from on high” and will be able to play our part in the life of the Church.


FIRST COMMUNION

Congratulations to the children from St Joseph’s NS who received the Eucharist for the first time last weekend.

We wish God’s blessing on them, their families, friends and teachers and all who helped them on their faith journey to this special time.


JPPC FUNDRAISER

Match the time of the first goal by either team in Offaly V Westmeath Football quarter final, on 11th June to win €500. Tickets available after all Masses in the Parish Centre. The proceeds are to fund nine young people going to Medjugorge.


CHARITABLE DONATIONS – CHY4 CERTS

All parishioners who donated €250 or more to the parish in 2016 have been sent a CHY4 cert. When you sign and return them to us we will be able to seek a tax refund of approximately 45% of the total donated.

Thank you to all who have signed and returned their certs and we would appeal to all parishioners to return them as soon as possible.

If you have mislaid your cert and would like a new one issued, please contact Noeleen, the Parish Secretary.


ACCOMMODATING ANNIVERSARY MASSES

Over the last 18 months there have been a large number of funerals in the parish. This has had a knock on effect on Month’s Memory and First Anniversary Masses. Both of these are important moments in grief.

In order to avoid causing families undue stress, having to wait months to mark these moments, from next weekend two intentions will be combined on Saturday night and 11.30am and 1.00pm Sunday Masses. This applies only to Months Memories and First anniversaries. Both families will be facilitated at the Offertory.


COLLECTORS WANTED

Collectors are urgently wanted, to form a rota to help with collections, at the 6.30pm Vigil and Sunday 10.00am and 1.00pm Masses. Please leave your name in the Sacristy.


PEACE PRAYER OF ST FRANCIS

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:

where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

where there is sadness, joy. 

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek

to be consoled as to console,

to be understood as to understand,

to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive, 

it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, 

and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Amen.
